Following the 2017 NSW City v Country Series held at Cabramatta Bowling and Recreation Club, 4-5 November, the 2018 NSW Junior State Squads were selected.
The NSW Junior State Squads are divided into Top and Silver tier squads, with ongoing squad requirements needing to be achieved throughout the year.
It is an uncommon occurrence that a Silver Tier member has fulfilled their duties in such a short period of time that they are elevated from the Silver Tier to the Top Tier Squad.
Today it gives Bowls NSW great pleasure to announce that Erin Swatridge of Glenbrook Panthers Bowling Club has been elevated to the NSW Junior Squad Top Tier.
Bowls NSW would like to congratulate Erin on this achievement and we are sure that all your hard work and effort will continue for the rest of 2018.
The State Junior Committee would also like to thank the outgoing members who have recently turned 18 or are about to turn 18. Jessica Smith and Hayley McDonnell are two bright young stars of our game and we look forward to seeing what the future holds for these two individuals.
As some of our Top Tier Squad players turn 18, it is very encouraging to note that the players who come in to replace these departing young stars are very much ready for the challenge. It is not only Erin, but a host of other players who are pushing for Top Tier and NSW Selection.
